Mikey, there are two reasons: (1) The cumulative effects of 8 years of Bush/Cheney and (2) The candidacy of Barack Obama.
Can you imagine a black person wanting to vote for the first black president of the USA? Crazy! Racist!
You're a white boy raised in a white town in a white state who hasn't ventured out into the real world. You're young and uneducated. What could you possibly know about the American Black Experience? Can you even imagine how black people – especially older blacks who knew systemic, overt racism firsthand – felt when it became clear that a black man was going to be the Democratic nominee? Can you imagine what those same people felt when they saw him take the oath of office? No, you cannot.
Poodle some bullshit about blacks voting for a black as evidence of their "racism". And don't forget to bring up Obama's church in Chicago for the 9000th time.
